My dad hates the crappy little pop-up peep sight that's currently on his Mini-30, so I was throwing around the idea of getting him a red dot sight for Christmas. I'm at the very beginning stages of looking into it. My questions were....how would they be mounted on a mini-30? Just a standard Picatinny rail? What problems have you run into, if any, with mounting optics on mini-30s?
What would I need to get besides the sight itself in order to mount it to the rifle?
Arms are the only true badge of liberty. The possession of arms is the distinction of a free man from a slave.
